Looks like America has some work to do…encouraging children to care about others besides themselves — via ads, newspaper articles, television shows, books, after-school programs, school curricula, church programs AND by example, etc.
If adults are asleep at the wheel or even purposely poisoning young minds concerning the RIGHTS and welfare of all sentient beings, of all species, then it is up to the rest of us to teach kids to appreciate all living beings. So thrilling that the puppy is now in good hands.
Elena Reyes Kent wrote, “Great words! I’ve been teaching children as well as adults my whole life. I keep squawking & will never stop. Although I feel there are many who agree with our views, those who also agree shy away from the spotlight. Not I, as I love those innocents more than I worry about who may throw stones at me. Their lives matter, so they can hit me with stones, bricks and boulders as long as they’re not throwing them at those who are voiceless.”
I love what she wrote! “I love those innocents more than I worry about who may throw stones at me.” I have landed in that same spot by now…never felt so smart in my life until I figured out that I am not important, but our cause IS! And THE significance of animal rights and welfare is that once acknowledged by all, the world will be changed for the absolute better …for every living being!
From The Post and Mail – Wonderful piece by Christie Workman – I adore this Monarch butterfly article … and Madge Woodham taught me to read! Great work, Christie!
One of the WANE-TV weathermen – Jesse Hawila – also raises Monarchs, a topic which he mentioned a couple of weeks ago during a telecast. I fell in love with him that night I did! An important endeavor which should be of interest to all of us… An informative yet gentle article from Christie!
